Description

(From the questionnaire), the story takes "a look at the city's longstanding pay-to-play system, in which campaign contributers are rewarded with city contracts and special favors -- deals to give lucrative airport concessions to connected individuals; apparent no-work jobs awarded to special friends of the administration; contracts allegedly inflated to give a cut to campaign contributors; multi-million donations made in secret to a non-profit organization tied to the region's most powerful state senator, money given a major electric utility with a big policy agenda".
